When you book online, you will be sent all the details you need in order to access the online platform to participate.

The growth of composites in manufacturing is an increasing issue for Design teams. With all the variables around composite materials and processes, it can be daunting for engineers used to metals.

Whether you're adapting to changes in your supply chain or wishing to become more competitive, this course aims to demystify the approach to designing for composites.  We'll cover the link between design, manufacturing and materials and the most important factors you'll need to consider.

What we'll cover

  • Understanding the requirements for composite design manufacture
  • Key material consideration including:
    • Types of resin
    • Types of reinforcement
    • Selection criteria
  • Awareness of key manufacturing process consideration such as:
    • Scale
    • Rate
    • Cost

Who should attend

We recommend this course for design engineering teams and individuals who want to develop their knowledge in composite design principles.

COVID-19 update - Easter shutdown and new working pattern

The NCC is taking a break for the Easter holidays and will be completely shutdown from Good Friday (10th April), returning on Monday 20th April.

From 20th April, all NCC staff will work a 4-day week, from Mondays to Thursdays. We will be completely shut on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. We will also re-open our workshop to support customer work and the national ventilator and recovery efforts, following a message from the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy to the UK manufacturing sector. We will have a phased return to the workshop for some of our manufacturing team, observing special measures for social distancing. 

The majority of our staff will continue to work from home. You can get in touch with us through your usual contacts via email and phone, or please email

Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will continue to update our website and social media channels to keep you informed.
